Stupid crappy International week. I hate it.

Having said that, I think Scotland might win Euro 2020.

I don't fault you Mark, I'd rather see Town in action than wait around for another for weekend of fixtures I could give a rat's as* for. Hope the Irish get a win but that's about as far as the interest goes.

Just on the Sears issue and to spare another post, he needs the right balance within the team to progress and show his potential. Maybe said before I never really rated the kid, i.e. he just hasn't been nowhere near prolific enough thus far and when he can put on a show, those instances seem too few and far between to warrant any real plaudits. You see McGoldrick at Derby County, last view he was fitting in well and making progress. Arguably a scenario of a player more adjusted to one club set-up than another. Sears may well be another example.

Individually, they are a very good bunch, but the real class amongst them didn’t make themselves available....., Ryan Fraser, Leigh Griffiths etc. If Big Eck hasn’t got the powers to demand then what’s the fkn point? And Allan McGregor is “MOTM” v Israel?! The arse has fell out of it officially.

Remember when Scotland produced players like Dalglish, Souness, Hansen, Wark, Burley, Robertson & Brazil? What has happened?

I think the Scottish youth these days are into curling more than football.

I guess the foreign imports in the PL and SPL don’t help. Every English team seemed to have 3 or 4 Scots in their team. Some PL teams now struggle to field 3 or 4 English players. It’s been stated we have a dearth of available quality English players playing at the highest level in the PL. I guess that has had a big knock on effect with Scotland who have less players to choose from. And probably there’s less kids playing ‘jumpers for goal posts’ in the streets when they can play FIFA 2018 inside.

I go back even further to names such as Willie Waddell, Baxter, Henderson, John White, David MacKay etc. It's bizarre Scotland have never progressed beyond the first round of a national competition given some of the stellar line-ups from years back but what's done is done. No surprise the domestic scene has seen European wins and Finals for teams involved but at international level it hasn't been nowhere near as celebrated as one might expect.

Try not to miss any opportunity on the subject of Scots soccer particularly of previous time, it's a shame more people aren't made aware or get involved.

That last paragraph made me think that Scottish football is like an endangered species. Do we need a Royal Society for the Prevention of Apathy in Scottish Football? I’m sure the Scots lament their past greats like we do in England, but still enjoy the football.. and the pies.. and the beer.. and the moaning... and all the other things other than decent football.
